We share a passion for the great outdoors, and we have a collection of treks/trails that show off the beauty of the planet we live in. It is our ambition to create guided treks or to lead custom trails to provide you with a lifetime of splendid memories
Welcome to Global Trekking
Hiking & Trekking
Why adventure with us?
We have been on the mountains for years, we have walked 10’s of thousands of miles between us.
We have guided groups around Nepal, including the inspiring Base Camp Everest trek, and Annapurna Circuit.
Although Nepal is a must visit in your lifetime, sometimes the convenience of the mountains in your doorstep can be missed. Europe has some of the most outstanding scenes of pure natural beauty; it’s easily accessible, and you can complete in stages if you can’t commit a single visit.
Below is a selection of our most popular treks however; spaces are limited and they book up fast!
Guided or Self-Guided?
We check our prices against other treks organised around Europe. When dealing with us directly, we can create custom hiking adventures to take you around Europe – all we need to know is when you would like to go, for how long, what budget you have and if there is anything in particular you would like to see.
Our guided hiking adventures are more expensive than self-guided trekking, but that’s not to say that you lose out much in the self-guided trek. Our support network is structured so that you have access to the resources which ensure you have the basic understanding of navigation and map reading. Provided as part of the self-guided package is the map and route card of your destination, along with pre-booked accommodation. We are developing a mobile application to keep you on track using your mobile phones GPS – the beta version of this includes the trek embedded on Google Maps ready for you to download. Our release version, due by 2020, will also include attachments and images to give even more details to keep you in the right direction!
We also organise trekking or hiking events supporting charities in their fundraising efforts. Our treks can take place in the UK, within Europe or as far as Nepal for the trip of a lifetime to the Himalayas.
Our group leader transmits their location every 10 mins, ensuring all of the supporters and family can see where and how the team are getting on. This is available to view here on our site, and can be shared on your social media platforms.
This promotes our safety on the mountains – as our leader has 100% global coverage.
We love the outdoors, and we love exploring! Although we are based in Northern Ireland, with the stunning Mountains of Mourne, we do explorer around Europe and further.
Rated as one of the World’s best treks is the Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) by The Guardian, and we can verify that it is as we have hiked around the TMB ourselves. For something a little more intense, we highly recommend the Dolomites for their beautiful ranges and with a head for heights you will have the experience of a lifetime.

Our website uses 256 bit encryption and verified payment processing, ensuring we keep our online clients safe. We offer gift vouchers that can be used to sign up to one of our fixed departure treks and can also be used towards that custom hike of the gift holders’ dreams!
I thought that fitting into a group I didn’t know would cause problems however; Global Trekking involved us all during the run up and we felt like a family before we had even departed! I have already booked again for next years trip to the Dolomites.
Excellently organised, the GPS updates showing the progress during the trek ensured my family slept easy while I was away. This trip was perfect for my adventurous needs! Highly recommend 5*
